What if the "King" of rock n roll did not die in the 1970's and was
still alive
and entertaining in night clubs, and starring in movies?

Would he have blessed Lisa Marie's marriage to Michael Jackson?
Would Lisa have grown up with a different personality with her dad
still alive?

Do you suppose Elvis would approve of his 15 year old granddaughter
(Lisa Marie's oldest daughter) being a fashion model?

Would Presela and Elvis reconcile their marriage?

Would Elvis, in his 70's, sing the same type of songs as he sang in
the 1960's
and 1970's?

Imagine an "Elvis Presley Television Special" on ABC, NBC or CBS,
whith an elderly Elvis entertaining on TV. Would he be a special
guest
star at either the Republican or Democrat Conventions of 2008?

Any speculations?

I think that he would be a sad parody of himself today. It was a
blessing he went when he did. He would probably be stuck doing retro
lounge acts in Vegas and Atlantic City, like Wayne Newton.

More likely Branson, Missouri; it's less of a commute and he gets to
hang around with Bobby Vinton and Debbie Reynolds.

You're right, I forgot the "Vegas in the Hills". He would have had his
own "theater" and restaurant chain also.

Probably doing one number a night three times a week and spending the
rest of the time shaking the occasional hand and playing the 'great man'
as people come into his vast hotel complex.

Medina Sidonia how many Spanish sword and buckler men he could beat
single handed with a quarterstaff.

Seeing how Lisa Marie was always daddy’s girl –
think she would’ve found a way to have Elvis approve of her marriag
to Michael Jackson. Can you imagine if the two ever perform togethe
during Michael’s prime

I also think he probably would have had several "comebacks
over the years - similar to what other older artists from his tim
have seem to have done
